Brilliant win from England and outplayed Australia from start to finish.

Should be a good final against the kiwis and a new name on the trophy.

It promises to be some day of sport on Sunday with the final, British GP, Wimbledon final and the Tour.

Australia were hammered. Smith's run out was an indication of the sort of day England had. Top order failure and the lack of Khawaja hurt them but the result would have been the same. At least Australia has unearthed Alex Carey who looks like being their next keeper/batsman when Paine disappears from tests. Stoinis and Maxwell had an awful cup with the bat and both should be dropped from the ODI squad. Maxwell has been a 20/20 expert for years now and nothing else. He no longer has the mindset for the other forms of the game. One of the most overrated batsmen of recent times.

I hope the Kiwis play up to their abilities and make it a contest. Could be interesting if they do but I still favour England to win.

Carey looks a great find and I’ve been impressed with him this World Cup.

While trying not to think too far ahead I do think yesterday showed just why Australia have struggled in England over the past few series with the swing and more importantly, seam on offer. They are also continuing to use last years Duke ball with its more pronounced seam, England are going to ask all sorts of questions to the Aussie top order in the Ashes.

The most bizarre and epic game I’ve ever watched. Very harsh on New Zealand, but an amazing win for England, never at any stage did I feel like they were going to win that game.

A fantastic achievement by Morgan and the team. Laughing stock in the last World Cup, now best in the world over the past 4 years, culminating in the World Cup win on home soil.

Apart from Stokes and Butler pressure got to the English batsmen, particularly Root or would normally look for a single but seemed to want to play big shots that were not on.

What a crazy game of cricket. New Zealand must be gutted.
